Spiritual Gifts Inventories
Did you know that the Bible lists several gifts or natural talents that are useful as followers of Christ? Taking a look at these spiritual gifts can help you think about how your natural gifting can be useful in a ministry setting (or anywhere!).
There are several different spiritual gifts inventories and quizzes available online and in print. Here are some you can try:
- Spiritual Gifts inventory from First United Methodist Church, Richardson, Texas
- Spiritual Gifts inventory from UMC Discipleship Ministries
- Gifting Questionnaire or Gifting Questionnaire for Students from Global Connections, UK (create a free account on the site to access the questionnaires)
Spend a few minutes reflecting on your results:
- Are you surprised by your results? In what way?
- If you are not surprised, how do you see these gifts in your life?
- Looking at the results as a group, how can you use your gifts to serve the church?
